Helpful Tips

Below is some helpful information that you may bring with you when you visit our showroom so we can begin immediately on design ideas. Appointments are strongly recommended for kitchen design & layout. Just give us a call!


A basic sketch and dimensions of your working space are necessary to get started on a design. Once you choose a design, a Custom Wood salesperson will come to your home to measure before ordering any cabinets or countertops.

Be sure to note ceiling height, all window and door openings, soffits and drop ceilings. Measure to the outside of all trim or casings. If you are working with new construction, bring blueprints with you.
